Library renewals and library catalogue

Covid-19 update: Frequently asked questions relating to Libraries


Sign in with your library card number and Personal Identification Number (PIN) to browse the catalogue, check and renew your loans, and place requests online. If you don’t know your PIN, please take one form of identification (ID) into any North Lincolnshire library and ask staff to issue you with your PIN, or email us from the email address on your membership record. For data protection reasons, we are unable to tell you your PIN over the phone.

If you are not already a member of our libraries then you a can join online by visiting the catalogue and  clicking ‘join the library’.  You will just need to complete the online form and choose a PIN of four digits. Alternatively, see our join the library page for more details. You can then collect your card from any library in North Lincolnshire, bringing one current form of name and address ID.

Take a shortcut to our Facebook page, read book reviews or add some yourself, check out our events and activities, or take a shortcut to our local history pages. To do some of these things, you will need to create a username. Just follow the simple steps after you have signed in.

You are still very welcome to renew your loans or place a request over the phone or in person at your local library.

Automated notifications

If you have given us your email address or mobile phone number, we can now send your ‘item available’ and loan reminder notifications directly to your inbox or mobile phone.  You can also set this up yourself online in ‘my account’. 

‘Item available’ email or text notifications are sent on the day your reserved item becomes available for collection from your designated library.

‘Pre-overdue’ email or text notifications are sent shortly before your loans are due for return, and ‘overdue’ notifications after your loans are due for return, to prompt renewal and return of items.


We have a range of ebooks available for download – for more details please view our ebook information.
